Review: Yves Rocher “So Elixir Purple”


Yves Rocher is an amazing company that has been alive for over 50 years! They were one of the FIRST companies to actually flat out refuse using animals as testing subjects. This is AMAZING. They didn’t do it because it was “the next big thing”. They did it because it was close to their hearts not to include animals as test subjects!

They use earth-friendly packaging and use as many natural ingredients as possible. I was excited when the Yves Rocher company included me in the reviewing of their new product So Elixir Purple.

Eau de Parfum

As you can tell, the packaging and the bottle are both elegant, sophisticated and downright stunning. I love that the bottle has an hourglass shape, it makes for something new in the perfume category.

I love that the bottle is clear, but yet looks purplish because of the very beautiful coloring of the perfume. It looks so classy and actually lets the focus of the beauty remain on the perfume color.

I opened the bottle and was immediately STUNNED by the exceptional quality of the perfume. It immediately made me think of “alluring, sexy, enchanting, and magical.”. They did a GREAT job of making me absolutely LOVE this perfume.

Never in my life have I smelled something so wonderful. If I ever had to think up a smell for a “LOVE potion”, I think it would be similar to this. It is so captivating, yet doesn’t have an overly strong “perfume” smell. It just has such a captivating, intoxicating fragrance that anybody would be sure to love.

The unique combination of an incredibly feminine infusion of Tuberose with essential Oils of Vetiver and Patchouli in a floral-woody elixir. I love that each of the ingredients being out such a uniqueness.

Bergamot has brought such cool undertone to this perfume. It is well known in perfumes for being able to blend other fragrances together, letting them fully compliment each other. In THIS particular perfume, it makes me think of a purplish midnight moon.

The Tuberose is a night-blooming plant, so this adds to the mystery of the smell. It has a very sweet, exotic gardenia type of smell. It blends very well with the bergamot extract, so it brings a sweet, enchanting, come-hither fragrance.

The vetiver has a smooth, earthy scent. This is what brings the “woody” smell to the floral-woody elixir. It makes me think of a light smoky almost citrusy scent. This is why it blends so well with the other fragrances. They have the same “citrus” undertone, yet each bring something totally different and exciting to the “fragrance” table.


They now have not only the perfume but spray deodorant, lotion, and shower gel as well. (YUM) Gotta  get me the others! It is fresh, floral, fruity, and herbal all in the same. It makes me have that sexy confident smell. It is warm, soft, and everyone LOVES the smell as I pass by.

It’s great for day, night, and every occasion. This is a brilliantly made perfume, and I LOVE it!

BUY IT: You can buy the So Elixir Purple for only $33 for a 50 ml!

THIS would make an AMAZING Christmas Gift or stocking stuffer!
